Bichir, who will also serve as a producer on the pilot, will play Mark, the father of 12-year-old vampire, Eleanor, who is forced to provide his daughter with fresh human blood in order to keep her alive. Originally, Let the Right One In focused on two 12-year-olds; Oskar, who lives with his mother, has few friends, and is often bullied, and vampire, Eli, as they form a relationship through isolation. However, it is yet to be seen how close the upcoming series will stick to the original story, or if the main focus will instead be on Bichir’s character, Mark, and his vampire daughter, Eleanor.
Upon its initial release, Let the Right One In captured the juxtaposition of beauty and horror with its innocent portrayal of two young outcasts who are drawn to one another. To this day, the original film remains high on many lists as one of the best romantic horror films of the 21st Century. While 2010’s Let Me In did not have the same impact on the horror genre, the story has survived through years of searching for a series home, and has many fans hopeful that Hinderaker’s Let the Right One In vision will be as powerful as the original film.
